Genuardi/Ruta - Locomotive Breath

“Locomotive Breath” is an exhibition at Casa Azul ▲ Torres Vedras curated by Jorge Reis from work in the context of artistic residency with the Italian duo Genuardi / Ruta supported by the Italian Council through the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea del Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali and per il Turismo.


Genuardi / Ruta or rather Antonella Genuardi and Leonardo Ruta work together as a single entity. They are able to compose in fluid balance with constant revision based on the color of one and the tension of the gestures and markings of the other. They explore the factors that make up space from painting and redefine architecture redesign through painting concepts. They express moments in time that intertwine the encounters of light with buildings, always maintaining the balance between the structural geometry that is reality and the visual qualities of that same geometry that inspire infinite possibilities and extensions of reality.


The exhibition “Locomotive Breath” will reflect an autobiographical perspective of the duo, combining results of the architectural research done in Portugal during the residency. It opens on December 16 and will be open until January 30, 2021. The exhibition can only be visited by appointment through the email jorgereis@emerge-ac.pt in order to comply with the rules determined by the General Directorate of Health.
